2016 challenge

Ok I've had a few and everyone has pissed of to bed so I was thinking. Pick a song/solo you don't currently know and learn it and post it here some time this year, so that's 12 months to go. Me I'm going for all the solos in queens it's a kind of magic. Tried it many moons ago but never came close 😀. It will be posted here before 2017.

Or tell me to piss off and go to bed

Cheers

Geoff

I'm in, and this is what I'm learning:

If I succeed more quickly than I expect, than this is next up:

I can do the first two sections, but start getting bogged down in the 2nd two, there's a lick (the fast harmonics run) I can't do at all, and the coda has escaped me thus far. But I'll get there.

Do we need to nominate the lead break or song up front?

I think it holds more credence if you nominate first however if you change it mid way no stress, it's all fun

Update from me Is I found a guy playing I want to break free, exported it to MP3 and slowed it down with jam up on iOS. Figured our it's basically D & A as the backing so I'll bounce that down into garage band then learn the solo slow and speed it up 😀

I already worked on the first one at the beginning of this year, then kinda got bored and/or frustrated and moved on to other songs.

The 2nd is actually one I started working maybe 20 years ago? It was when I first started picking up guitar and thought I might be good at fingerstyle. So I can do the first two sections because I woodshedded the crap out of them for a good year. I get bogged down in the next 2 sections and the end because enthusiasm ebbs the longer you work on a piece...and when you pick it up to start working on it, you usually start at the beginning, right?

So I'm not starting from scratch on either one.

I'm in. I've been doing this for fun lately. This is the last one I did.

Have to decide on the next one.

I have absolutely no idea how to play a song through or how to record it. So I'm aiming for NYE 2016 with this learning curve.

Play along with the 45 until the bar reaches the center. Repeat as necessary.

We'll have to get together and I'll get you set up for recording on the computer. Maybe we can find a Multi-track .mogg file to use.

I think I have everything I need to do it now. It's just a matter of doing it. You can come by and stick a red hot poker up my ass and maybe I'd get wound up.

Hey, now. Let's keep that sort of talk in the Outer Circle where it belongs!
